From SpecialTeas

The Kenilworth Orange Pekoe is a treat for the eyes, nose and palate. The long, crisp, dried leaves are dark brown with beautiful tawny tips; the infusion has a soft, almost rose-like scent that imparts a pleasing taste that is free of astringency. A very likable, elegant breakfast or afternoon tea. Try it over ice for a refreshing gourmet iced tea!

Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water to a roaring boil; steep for 3 min. Try with rock sugar.

The dry leaves are slender and long, just like in the picture, and very dark. They don’t have much of an aroma beyond the normal black tea scent. Once they are wet the leaves unfurl nicely.
The liquor is orange-copper, opaque, and has a sweet bouquet. Very mild, very smooth. It sips very well. The first wave is immediate and strong, with just a touch of bitter astringency on the front end. The middle notes are mildly buttery, and the end notes are honeyed and sweet. Throughout the whole sip the overriding, strong “tea” flavor is present. This is a great cup of tea.
As always, I rinsed first with near-boiling water, but just for a few seconds. The above notes are without cream and sugar. After sampling and writing, I tried it with cream and sugar: the bite is gone and replaced with just the highlights that I associate with Ceylons. This is a great tea, especially for the price.
I’d recommend this cup for anyone, from new to seasoned.

I’ve never found Ceylon interesting, but this made a pretty good cup. It has hints of cocoa and citrus. I wouldn’t go out of my way to purchase it, but I wouldn’t turn it down either.

My favorite Ceylon, if I described it with one word it would be smooth.

Absolutely stellar: my favorite Ceylon, unless you count Brewhaha’s Rose Tea, which is a Ceylon base. Delicate, honeyed flavor; relatively difficult to over-brew!
